Hashawha Nature Center

Hello,

Happy Thankful Thursday, wishing everyone a great day!

These are some images from our July 1st walk at the local Hashawha Nature Center in Carroll County Maryland.  It is one of my favorite parks, the trails are great. There is always something to see there, lots of birds and wildflowers .  

The trail and lake at Hashawha Nature Center.

I am always thankful for the little things.
I am thankful to spend time with nature.
am thankful for all your visits and comments.

  1. Lots of great places to walk where you live, Eileen. If you are interested the correct name of the bird is Common Yellowthroat, not common Yellowthroated Warbler.
